Best dating usernames

They were, to me, the pseudonym equivalent of a cheesy pickup line.

Much more appealing were earnest self-depictions or vague, consciously nonsensical noun mish-mashes.

On my fourth or fifth date arranged through OKCupid I met my current boyfriend, who happens to be the most communicative, fun, and kind person I’ve met, online or off.

I’ll spare you the gush-fest; suffice it to say we’re an awesome match.

For Women | For Men OK, ladies, you know how men like to browse dating websites: They look at the picture first and your username next.

I’m quite sure our readers are not going to copy them for their own personal usage. The most memorable (in a good way) were a Blond Moment, Polyglotapus, and Toe_Tap_N.

While we don’t usually get a chance to choose our given name, we can choose our dating username, and that can give us a head start on meeting someone special.

Your username should tell people something about you.

I don’t attribute this to an alignment of stars, to the mercy of the web gods and goddesses, or even to OKC’s algorithm, which supposedly uses questions such as “What’s worse, book burning or flag burning? Instead, I chalk up my positive online dating experiences -- which, with the exception of a brazen date who rudely shushed fellow theatergoers (referred to amongst my friends henceforth as “the shusher”), has been without horror stories -- to my careful evaluation of a potential match’s username before arranging a date.

Puns and hyper-masculine references were mostly no-gos.As someone who has been an online dating coach since 2003, I’d venture to guess that I’ve not only seen more usernames than just about anyone on the planet, but I’ve written more of them as well.
